Massachusetts and Connecticut Immigration Lawyer

At The Harrington Law Firm, we help business owners from Connecticut, Massachusetts and across the United States deal with immigration cases involving Employer Sanctions or Sanction.


Since November 1996, the USCIS (Formerly the INS) has been using sanctions against employers who are caught employing undocumented workers in the United States. The effect of the regulations has been to place an increasing burden on employers to maintain appropriate paperwork such as the I-9 Form on every worker, verifying that the legal residency status has been documented. In effect, USCIS has been targeting the supply side of the illegal alien problem, placing an undue burden on the backs of employers with the possibility of civil sanctions and even criminal penalties for non-compliance. Sanctions have become the new "cyber-wall" against immigration, often causing financial ruin to legitimate business owners.
